Puddle Poster

And here's a poster I just found inside my Live at the Teddy Bear Club LP as I was getting it out for a spin. Don't think I went to it but somehow I scored myself a poster. Was probably the day before the gig I recorded by the looks.

The Puddle - Live at Warners Hotel, Christchurch 03.10.93

Here's a recording of The Puddle I made on my Sony walkman back in the early 90's. After a bit of a scrub up it hasn't come up too badly if I may say so myself. Often with my attempts using it there was just too much distortion on the recording to be of much use but thankfully this Puddle one was salvageable.
I saw these guys play three or four times in the early 90's and count myself very lucky indeed. First time was at a venue upstairs in high st called 'The new atlantis market' (not to be confused with the 'old' atlantis market which was in cathedral square for many years) and they pretty much blew my head off with their crazy brand of loose knit, awkward, brilliant, bordering on falling over (but never quite falling) songs.
This video of  'Thursday' is relevant as it was made around the same time I made this recording and hence the lineup should be the same. Thursday's not included in this bunch of songs though.
I do know a little of the history of these guys but why bother writing about it when someone else has beaten me to it and has done a much better job than I ever could.
